Old Maps of Willington

Historic Maps of Willington and the local area.

Beside the end house was a single path. The house was occupied by Tommy Jewell I was in the same class as his daughter Pat. Next door was George Smailes the school master who was secretary for Willington when they won the Amateur cup. Frank Smailes was a good centre forward and played for Northern League clubs.

Somewhat puzzled by this photograph, if this is 55',where is Simpsons petrol station? HI Malcolm, I passed your comments to our archivist and she has changed the date to c1960 - these later images were not dated so we have to make educated guesses! I hope that this makes sense now. Regards, Editor.
